The Citadel, Halifax, NS, Canada
The heart of Fortress Halifax is the Citadel, which looms over the city on an ancient drumlin. It is the most heavily restored of all the sites around Halifax, and as such, hasn’t held as much interest for me visually. Given the degree of my documentation of the other forts, however, I decided it made sense to begin visually recording the Citadel, so I could incorporate it into my larger group of images of Fortress Halifax.
This session was a mixed blessing. I truly made some successful images - “well seen” as Weston might say, but there is still some element of the photos being forced - little passion bleeds through them. I will return to the Citadel again, and build upon the foundation made this day.
